At this point we can pretty much agree that Prince Harry loves the right to free speech! Unless of course, when that right is used to criticize him. Rather recently he even called the first amendment “bonkers”. You have to admit the fact that he doesn’t like people speaking out against him is a very royal trait that he still exhibits. It seems that every time that he gets in front of a microphone he uses the opportunity to throw shade at something that he doesn’t like. This time around he chose the term “Megxit” as his new target.
Harry appeared as a guest on the “The Internet Lie Machine” an event organized by Wired. In the event he talked about how he even foreshadowed the infamous capitol riots. Even going as far as to warn Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. If you put two and two together, maybe it was his fault Trump got kicked out of Twitter! That’s a story for a different day though, back to Megxit.
The Term Megxit Was Started By A Troll
According to Harry the term Megxit was first coined by a troll. From there, thanks to its catchy tune and the obvious word play that alluded to the ongoing “Brexit” political drama it stuck. Harry says that it was then taken over by his pals in the British press and the rest is history. Although, he didn’t really provide any details about how he knew it was started by a troll. The Prince mentioned,
“It was created by a troll, amplified by royal correspondents, and it grew and grew and grew into mainstream media.”
What Is This About Megxit Being Misogynistic
After the troll comments Harry took things one step further calling the term Megxit, “misogynistic”. Even the moderator at the event gave Harry a chance to explain why he thought the term was in fact misogynistic. As was the case with the troll comment Harry just kind of shrugged it off and moved on. No one at the event wanted to explain to Harry that the term actually was more of a reference to the idea that he was being considered a “whipped husband”. If anything it’s a reference to female power or at least the power Meghan has over him. Anyway, Harry mentioned,
“Maybe people know this and maybe they don’t, but the term ‘Megxit’ was or is a misogynistic term,”
Getting Trolled By Twitter Users Who Were Following The Event
Harry would go on to say that he and his wife were not on social media because of all of the hate that was spread through these channels. As he was literally saying that he was getting mocked by folks on Twitter, that were confused by his understanding of the word misogyny. With some users going as far as to say that he had no idea what he was talking about. You have to give it Harry he proved his point right then and there. As a divisive figure he gets a lot of hate on social media. That we can agree on, even if some of us maybe on the fence on the whole Megixt being misogynistic ordeal.
Harry hasn't got a clue what he's talking about.
